PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday lashed out at Congress President Rahul Gandhi after he publicly declared his prime ministerial ambition, and wondered whether the country will ever accept such an ‘immature and naamdar (famous)’ leader for the post.

“The naamdar who does not have confidence in his alliance partners. Who doesn’t care for Congress’ internal democracy, whose arrogance has reached cloud seven, and is declaring himself that he would be the Prime Minister in 2019. Will the country ever accept such an immature ‘naamdar’ leader?” Modi told an election rally here.

Prime Minister Modi’s attack came a day after Gandhi said he was ready to occupy the Prime Minister’s post if his party emerged as the ‘biggest’ party in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, making known his ambition for the topmost executive post.
